SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ – A massive 15 foot T-Rex and his human friend Troubadour from Field Station: Dinosaurs, a family themed dinosaur attraction in Secaucus made an appearance this Saturday morning from 11:00AM-11:30AM at the Scotch Plains Public Library's Children's Center located on 1927 Bartle Avenue. The free public event featured Troubadour and the T-Rex teaching children some dances and reading a dinosaur themed story "Dinotrax".

With Troubadour, the T-Rex performs daily with over 32 life-sized animatronic dinosaurs that can be found at Field Station: Dinosaurs. The park gives families a unique, educational, and exciting experience as they come face to face with dinosaurs. The animatronic dinosaurs, like the T-Rex are brought to life by skilled roboticists and artists and they give families a unique encounter with the already extinct species.

In preparation for Troubadour and the T-Rex's visit, Michelle Willis, the Head Librarian at the Scotch Plains Public Library's Children's Center expressed how excited she was and continues to be pleased with what the Children's Center has done to educate and excite children.
